Astrid Scheuermann, MA Film, Photography and Media student

Astrid Scheuermann

What made you want to apply to your MA course and to Leeds?

I am a journalist from Panama City, Panama who has always wanted to do an MA in Photography and Film to further my career. I am passionate about the possibilities that audio-visual media offers with regards to telling stories. I wanted to study this MA course so I could then utilise my skills to create a production company or media outlet in my country of origin. 

What aspects of the course did you enjoy the most?  

I loved developing my final project, which was made easier by the University providing top-notch facilities and excellent staff. 

I also enjoyed learning about UK culture and most importantly, all the positive life experiences of being here.

How did you find living in Leeds?

Leeds is great for students. It is a fun city, where students can engage in plenty of activities and get to know like-minded people. I joined several societies and went on several trips with the Get Out Get Active club.
